Wow, I can say that this book is very very useful in trying to better understand Russian culture. Through search engines I was able to learn some facts here and there about Russian culture, but nothing as comprehensive as this book comes up. You can be sure that this author, former diplomat in Russia focusing on culture, knows what he is talking about. Couldn't put this down!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
